Benson-Nannie and Frank-TN, GA, Jefferson Co. AL
Nannie Smith Benson, born in Tennessee July 1865, died 1910 in Jefferson Co. Alabama. Nannie's parents (Schmidt/Smith) were German born. Nannie married Frank T. Benson, born in Georgia July 1857, died Jefferson Co. Mar. 12, 1918. In 1910 census Frank was listed as a miner. Frank's father was born in GA, mother born in Ireland. There were 2 sons, John and Frank Fred (Freddie) and 1 daughter-name may be Ellen. Problem is John S., the elder son, is half brother to Freddie, but apparently not the son of Nannie. John took the name of Benson and continued to live in Jeff. Co. until his death March 1955. I will be glad to exchange info. with anyone who may know of these ancestors.
